Sugarcane – Battersea (Now Closed)

“Jamaican” me hungry 🌴🤤 {ad – press sample}

Can you *believe* we still don’t have many fully vegan sit-down Caribbean spots in this city? So of course @sugarcanelondon’s new vegan branch is a very welcome addition to the scene 👏🏼🌴

I’ve always found Caribbean cuisine to be an explosion of flavour so I was excited to pop down and check out Tyrell’s food 👀 Here’s what I nibbled on:

🍄 Jerk mushrooms w/ a homemade marinade
💰 £6

🌱 Callaloo patty packed w/ spices & turmeric
💰 £3.50
🏆 Fave dish

🌱 Ackee & blossom fruit – a vegan version of the Caribbean’s national dish made with sautéed onions and sweet peppers
💰 £9
🏆 Fave dish

🥘 Rastaman red pea stew
💰 £9

🌯 Di Ital vegan wraps (St Lucian roti) with red peas, spinach, carrots, pumpkin, pineapple & vegan mayo
💰 £8

🍚 Jerk rice
💰 £4

🌽 Sweetcorn fritters – Jamaican fritters w/ organic corn and a hint of scotch bonnet served w/ thyme mayo
💰 £5.50

🌱 Jamaican dumplings made w/ almond milk and vanilla
💰 £4.50

🤷🏼‍♀️ Visit again? Yes. The team are so lovely and so humble. The food is bursting with authentic Caribbean flavour and clearly cooked with love and passion. My feedback was that I would’ve liked a different type of mushroom and a bit more spice in the jerk but otherwise I really enjoyed the food. It’s also interesting to note that they employ care leavers – train them and pay for their chef qualifications. They are also focused on organic ingredients and try to stay away from meat subs, harnessing the power of plants
